I am flexible about transfers, and trust that you will take good care of them. To request a transfer, go to the memorial that you want, click the edit tab, and send your request as a suggestion/additional information. Following the FAG procedure will ensure a smooth, accurate transfer. Please also use this tab for requests for corrections and links.

When I complete a photo request, I keep all the original images. My photos may be used and reposted for personal use and not for profit. I do appreciate when people credit me as the source, just as a courtesy.

Whenever possible I will try to include photos of couples graves and family plots with Mums and dads with their children and general family plots.

King, Pennington, jorgensen, gough, miller, scurr, moseley, bundo, Allensen, Blunt.

RE: McGaviston/McGaveston

I just got a response from the Tasman Council

"Thank you for your email earlier in the week advising of the correct spelling for the McGaveston Family. Please note that the changes have now been made to our Cemetery Database."

Hi Mystik,

I have tried searching the name through the Whangarei council website and have contacted the managing board.

Neither come up with the person who you are searching for.

Could you check the details and get back to me.

Best regards

RE: McGaviston/McGaveston

Thank you for the response. Ive now contacted the Tasman Council about getting them changed. I have some images of those headstones but the light was poor and they are under a lot of shade so didnt come out very well. Ill be back there in January this year so will try to get some better images.

Some of my ancestors are listed with the McGaviston spelling under your findagrave profile but their names were spelt McGaveston.

John Cornwall McGaveston etc

Sorry I couldn't find how to message you privately.

RE: Ann Glynn
Found her stone, and William's, and what appears to be a handful of other Glynn's buried at Hillside Cemetery. I added all that I found.

RE: charlotte bowen

Yes, unfortunately the headstone is extremely worn, but I got up close to it in person and could read it quite well. Had to 'braille read' a few words though! I have added the transcription to the photo. If you haven't already, you can read this if you click on the headstone photo. :)

RE: We must be wery distantly relate
Hi Steph,
I knew that we must be related (but distantly of course.)
I am descended from Thomas George Glynn (I am his great grandson). Martha; Leonard McCale's wife was my grandmothers youngest sister. I was over in New Zealead in February 2013 staying with Matha's eldest daughter Mary Leighton. Mary was Thomas George McCale's half sister.
All persons mentioned here are on my family tree.
My line goes as follows, Thomas George Glynn is my great grandfather, Anna Elizabeth Glynn was my grandmother. Elizabeth Jane Hendy was my mother. And I am yours truly Robert Nicholson
